't have all of the information yet. but i want to say that i have a lot of confidence generally in the fbi and they have a difficult job. and so i'm going to wait and see. >> the white house says there are protocols, that's the word they used, that must be followed when notifying the white house about criminal investigations. but keeping them honest, turns out there was a 2007 memo by then attorney general michael mukasey about notifying the white house and it states "the department will advise the white house about such criminal or civil enforcement matters only where it's important to the performance of the president's duties and importance to from a law enforcement perspective," it goes on the say, "it is critically important to have frank and expeditious communications relating national security matters, including counterterrorism and counterespionage issues." yet the white house insists president obama didn't know of the affair until after the election. as for the investigation itself, we've got breaking news on that. we are joined by fran townsend, a member of the cia's external advi
have a lot of confidence generally in the fbi and they have a difficult job. and so, i'm going to wait and see -- >> well the white house says there are protocols that is the word they use when notifying the white house about criminal investigations. turns out there is a 2007 memo by the ten attorney general about sush investigatich invest. now it goes onto say it is critically important to have free quent and expeditious communications about issues. yet the white house said the president didn't know about the affair until after the election. fran, you have been talking to your sources. what have you learned? >> what is interesting, what we understand is that paula broadwell had consented to this search of her home. but they agreed to get a search warrant and went ahead and executed that. we understand from law enforcement officials that they are reviewing those documents they say that the classified material is not substantial that they have seen and two, while it may be a technical violation it is not egregious. the law enforcement official told me that they don't expect that there w
at the present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation ongoing and that will give us the definitive word on what transpired. putting together the best information we have today, the current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hoyers before in cairo. a copycat attack which were prompted of course by the video. >> senator, you said that two days before that, director petraeus said it was terrorism. why didn't ambassador rice call it terrorism two days later? >> because she could speak publicly only on unclassified speaking points. i have some concern with those speaking points. but let me correct one thing. >> right. but what are the concerns and why speak at all? in other words, why was there a reference to it being a terrorist attack taken out of the public talking points? >> that is something that we're going to find out. but it was. that's the point. now, with the allegation that the white house changed those talking points, that is false. there is only one thing that was changed, and i've checked into
that i have a lot of confidence generally in the fbi. and they've got a difficult job. it is also possible that had we been told, then you'd be sitting here asking a question about why were you interfering in a criminal investigation. >> while the president withholds judgment, the investigation process is already under scrutiny on capitol hill. the heads of the fbi and the cia, the agenting head right now, mike morel met with them. he's sifting through e-mails between general john allen and jill kelley. it came to light after kelley began receiving anonymous messages in may. thinking she was being stalked, kelley flagged an fbi agent she knew, now identified as fred are dr frederick humphries. a hand full of e-mails between kelley and allen were flagged as inappropriate. however, this source insists there was no affair. allen who has denied any wrongdoing and an affair and whose nomination as supreme commander in europe is on hold has pledged to cooperate with the investigation. meanwhile, the fbi is still trying to wrap up the petraeus incident. they're looking through potential
correspondent john miller, former fbi national intelligence official, joins us with the latest on the fbi and the president of justice investigations. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. we spoke a friend of the broadwell family who told us they were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from neighbors. 25 of them came over with all kinds of food and kind of set up camp there. on the home front it looks like things are coming back together. on the legal front there's a little more concern. let's go through the mechanics here. when this starts out, the agents get the stalking complaint and instead of waiting to get through the case and then bring it to a prosecutor, right at the beginning, because they see who this might involve, they go to an assistant u.s. attorney and say, if we go through with this, is there a prosecution your office would go forward with? and that tampa office says yes. then the special agent in charge of the tampa office reviews the case. he says this involves some big names. some interesting possibilities. let's kick this up a level. he brings it to robert o'
judgment for now on the fbi inquiry that exposed david petraeus' personal life and forced him to resign. >> thanks to president obama for the confidence -- >> reporter: david petraeus no longer heads the cia, but he's volunteered to testify this week to congressional benghazi hearings as new details emerge about the e-mails that helped end petraeus' career. >> he's provided this country an extraordinary service. >> reporter: speaking for the first time about the scandal wednesday, president obama praised petraeus for extraordinary service saying he's seen no signs of a national security breach over the course of the investigation. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would've had negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: republican senators brushed off that scandal calling the attack on benghazi far more important. >> there's the weird and the strange and the human failings in one camp. and there is a legitimate question about national security being breached in the other camp. >> reporter: meanwhi
motivated to investigate those e-mails. something like that should not and would not rise to an fbi probe? >> it's a great question, and what we found out was the way he was being described was really inaccurate. people had initially reported and republican leaders had described him as a whistleblower who came forward, complaining to cantor, house majority leader cantor's office because he was worried the fbi investigation that uncovered an affair by the cia director david petraeus was stalled for political reasons. it was implied he was concerned about the progress of this case and worried about it being shelved improperly. what we found in our reporting is sources very close to humphries and aware of his account, briefed on his information, tell us quite a different story about the agent. he's a tampa agent who had a long-standing sort of social acquaintance with jill kelley, the woman in tampa. he basically forwarded some information to his tampa fbi colleagues about harassing e-mails that were more interesting than everyday harassing e-mails because they mentioned a four-star general.
reveals as to whether or not he misused resources. tell me what is the fbi's conclusion about the documents, the chas fied documents that broad broadwell allegedly had on her computer. what is going to happen with general allen, the war chief, he had 20 thousand pages back and forth with jill kelley, the social it that paula broadwell was e-mailing and only five were of a questionable nature. you have all of these facts swirling and lives and reputations in the balance being judged. i want to get down to the bottom of the facts. it's not my job to judge these people. >> okay. kimberly dozier, many thanks. great conversation. appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> has technology reduced the violence in the middle east? we will look at the iron dome defense system coming up. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from
